    I'm surprised they didn't release the bundle earlier.

    Actually looking to buy an Xbone for FH3, but i'm not paying $450 Canadian (!) for it.

    For context, I can buy a refurbished 500 GB Xbox One, with the VIP pass, car pass, Blizzard Mountain expansion, AND the ultimate edition of Forza 6, and it comes out to about $458 Canadian, and I get so much more.

    And this is all from the Microsoft store, mind you.

    I'm sorry, but when I read this:
    The first thing I thought of was @TB. Not a pleasant mental picture. :lol:

    Should've went around Black Friday: my sister picked up a 1 TB slim with GOW4 for $380 (and FM6 was cheap). Or, I suppose, Microsoft should've offered this new bundle around then. :p

    Alternately, if you want to wait a few months, chances are I'll be trying to unload my original 500GB for a Scorpio! :sly:

    I'm not interested in getting a Scorpio, but yeah, just gotta wait to get paid. :)

    That's precisely my point. I'll have a pristine 500 GB available in, oh, six or so months. ;)

    It's become a bit of a balancing act: I feel like I'll want to upgrade, but I don't want to go without an XB1 for a long while. If I wait too long though, I'm imagining the floor will drop out from under my system in terms of used prices.

    FFS!

    I bought an Xbox One S YESTERDAY thinking this simply wasn't going to happen. Thanks Microsoft. I still got a pretty good deal, IMO. 500gb One S with BF1 for $265, and I had a $100 gift card, so it was only $165.

    I would have bit on this during the holidays, but the only Xbox S bundles I could find were Mindcraft and Gears of War.
    I did pickup the FH3 download on sale.

    My "Day One 2013" Xbox One is still going strong, but so was my PS4 when I traded it in for a PS4 Pro. Kinda of sucker that way, so I'm likely to get the Scorpio when it arrives. If only I could trade in my Toyota for a Ford GT...

    Good, because I pulled the trigger on a 500 GB refurbished Xbone and FH3. :)

    I just got the 1TB FH3 bundle this week. :) Snagged an extra white controller marked down to $40 on Amazon too.
    First Xbone, first time playing Forza, and it's pretty awesome.
